Regular price? Hot Deal? It's a Sega. Not a Nintendo.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

The one in your Walmart picture is probably not the real one, it says "30" Games and the one that is being released is "40" games.

No it's real. It's the same.

No, it says the Genesis has been around for 30 years. It was released in August 1989.

Anyway I still have a preorder from Walmart.ca from when they were on for $80.

And to further add to this, there wont be 40 games day1, they will release progressively
What? No... how are they going to push new games to it? It doesn't even have the ability to connect to a network.

I'm not sure. I think you are right, after some research. But the bestbuy description originally made me believe they would come in "wave".

The SG Mini will have 40 games, no doubt about that. The only thing they released/announced in stages was which games would be released with it.
Hopefully someone develops an easy hack to add games via USB like the NES and SNES classics.

Wondering how & why a random WM got early access to this? That definitely poses some doubts.

Product gets shipped to stores early. They're not supposed to put it out on the floor or sell it until the contract release date.

I think it was planned for 40 but i believe they added 2 more so should ship with 42.

Yeah it's misleading..it was more like a few waves of game announcements which started a year ago.

Closer examination of the box reveals it is collecting dust.

It doesn't take much sleuthing to see that it checks out. Second picture matches:

Walmart preorder page

Store 3145 shows two in stock using Stocktrack, but lists it as out of stock in store. There are a couple others showing limited stock and a green available in Richmond Hill. I'm guessing they broke street date.
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri
